"Johnny Z (John Zambetti) and the lads have cooked up a broad cross-section of holiday cheer, mostly California beach vocalizations, plus a couple of really cool instrumental tracks. "Carol of the Swells" totally shredzzzz! The Malibooz have a pedigree that emanated from the mid-sixties, when they were an east coast surf band featuring both instrumentals and vocals. In the early eighties they emerged in a highly polished form and, in 1992, Iloki Records' Chris Ashford put them in the studio to do this Christmas album. Walter Egan and John Zambetti have recorded a fairly straight seasonal CD with "Carol of the Swells" as the best track." - Phil Dirt of Reverb Central in Santa Cruz, California.
